Track Name: The Grind
"The Grind"
Words and Music by David Celia (SOCAN)

I was holding back another day
Some people got a lot of things to say
It’s good to let a smile get on your face
Let down your shoulders, float into space

If your feet are always running
That’s ok if it’s a friendly chase
Otherwise, it might be a case
You’ve got to protect your teeth
They can’t be easily replaced

Ohhh
Don’t let it grind you down
If it don’t get you in the day
It’ll get you at night

I took a little walk outside myself
It was just the other day
There were people gathered all around
Most of them were on their phones
One guy even had two
I was glad that I could see

Ohhh
Don’t let it grind you down
If it don’t get you in the day
It’ll get you at night

Ohhh
Don’t let it grind you down
If it don’t get you in the day
It’ll get you at night

If it don’t get you in the day
It’ll get you at night


(you’re gonna make it
You’re gonna pull through)

Track Name: Speak To Me
"Speak To Me"
Words and Music by David Celia (SOCAN)

I called you up this evening
To say something from my heart
And when we made it to the hard part
We seemed to have got disconnected

The lines don’t seem too clear
‘Cause every time I feel I’m getting near
I wonder if you know where I am going
Are you coming with me or are you staying here?

The days fly past like tomorrow
We think about it though it isn’t here
I just wanna be lyin’ there beside you
Talking ‘bout our problems ‘til it’s clear

I want someone who I can talk to
Who can tell me what it is that makes them bleed
'Cause the wounds keep coming in with each day
But they all go away when I hear you say.
